Vestas chooses Maersk for turbine powertrain transport

Danish renewable energy company Vestas has launched a new project with its compatriot shipping giant Maersk. Vestas has awarded Maersk a contract for transporting the extra heavy powertrains of its largest ever built wind turbine V236.

This heart-piece of the 15MW turbine weighs 260 tons alone and will be installed in the nacelle in Vesta’s factory in Lindø, Denmark. Maersk will manage the transport with special equipment from the assembly site in Lommel, Belgium via Antwerp to the port of Lindø. The powertrain is one of a number of large components of the nacelle. The final V236 nacelle has a total weight of more than 630 tons including the powertrain.

At a later stage, Maersk will also move the V236 powertrains to a new Vestas factory in Poland. Apart from heavy lift transports, Maersk is also taking care of Vesta’s containerized cargo as well as air freight, customs services, intermodal and warehousing as part of a fully integrated logistics solution on a global scale.

"An integrated supply chain solution which is being designed and built together with a strategic partner adds visibility and thus resilience to our logistics operations as well as a lot of ease while executing our complex logistics business," stated Damien Lhors, Group Senior Vice President of Global Supply Chain and Transport at Vestas.

Claus Svane Schmidt, Global Head of Maersk Project Logistics, commented, "For more than two years, we have been working for Vestas in a close partnership, developing exciting heavy lift projects as well as normal containerized cargo. We are extremely honoured about being the preferred and trusted partner for Vestas. The transport requires complex logistics capabilities and experience, which makes us even more proud to be selected by the world’s leading renewable energy company."
